COVID-19, “Shelter in Place,” – Day 6

Journal – March 21, 2020: “My sister, Michele called. She went to Dutchman’s and bought 50 pounds of white potatoes, 50 pounds of red potatoes, and 25 pounds of carrots.

I texted my friend Brenda and asked how to use Boric acid. She is a nurse on the worship team. Sunday, I asked for help with my clogged tear duct. She mentioned Boric Acid. (It’s not the same as Borax.) She was getting groceries for herself and her parents. She offered to get me some. She bought the last bottle in town. I printed off instructions from leaf.tv and used it to soak my eyes.”
